Ron Paul on Quiet Secession

Written by Gary North on February 20, 2015


In a speech at the Mises Institute, Ron Paul discussed operational secession. State governments are not enforcing federal rules and regulations. This is a quiet movement. There are no fireworks.

Written by Gary North on September 11, 2013

Colorado entered the union in 1876. The voters were given the right to recall elected politicians, but until September 10, 2013, they had never done this. Now they have.
